DR. ARMITAGE- The brains and motivation behind this garden. He founded this lovely place in 1982 along with Dr. Dirr. Since then, we’ve been thriving and growing! Dr. A, as we like to call him, is very passionate about his profession and enjoys sharing his love for horticulture with students and visitors at the garden. He’s written a number of books that you can check out on his own personal website if you’d like-http://www.allanarmitage.net/
MEG GREEN -The main contact for the outside world to the gardens. She coordinates with companies that would like us to trial their plants. She is a very experienced gardener/horticulturalist which lends her the job of analyzing our plants and publishing data on their performance. Also a devoted runner, she’s always on the go!
B.J. GARRETT- Our head volunteer that makes things happen around here. She’s a master gardner by trade and a plant nerd at heart. Her hours here are countless and service invaluable. Also, she can propagate plants like nobody’s business!
